I'm an IT Professional with an exceptional voice: Recently, I have gone on retreats with professional recording musicians (most notably, Marc Anderson) and I have an everyday hobby of creating musical sounds, compositions and creating unique and funny characters with my voice. I enjoy reading to my son everynight and adding a little extra vocal dimension to each character in the story makes the reading experiences much more fun for my son and other children I read to. I was in the choir in highschool and have been to many venues including All County Choir. In college (Stony Brook University), I was a member of the Chamber Choir, all a-capella, creating unique instrumental sounds with my voice.
